One Four Challenge: February Week 4

Dandelion Week 4 GIMP edits (605x800)

For this week I have used the advice of Ben at Ben’s Aperture64 and did some editing in GIMP.  Not as easy to navigate as Photoshop but for this I used the brush to get rid of that glare in the top of the dandelion.  Plus I also darkened the stem so that the focus is on the axctual dandelions heading off.  I am not sure if I was successful so any constructive criticism is welcome.

Here is the original

Double Delight in full glory (606x800)

Good morning from another grey and wet Hastings.

So to brighten up my day and everyone else’s here is a bright cheery photo of the double delight rose – yet again.  I know I have posted a lot of photos of these roses, but I just love them.
